About the Coalition of African Lesbians
The Coalition of African Lesbians (CAL) was established in 2003. The Coalition is committed to raising consciousness amongst and strengthening activism and leadership of lesbian and bisexual women and transdiverse people. CAL believe in the power of collective action. CAL view themselves as a part of social movements, including the women's movement, the sexual and reproductive rights movement, the broader lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex movement and the economic justice movement.
CAL works to transform Africa into a place where all lesbian and bisexual women and transdiverse people enjoy the full range of human rights, secure in the knowledge that we are recognized as full citizens, with rich and diverse cultures, and a significant and respected presence in all spheres of life, including social, political and economic and through personal and organizational growth.
CAL is an activist organization engaging in direct action to demonstrate our resistance and rage against those who oppress us; CAL mobilises its communities and others to take action against patriarchy, homophobia and other forms of oppression; lobby those in power to make decisions that advance our rights; constantly develop our own analysis and thinking based on our personal and lived experiences and realities and learning from others. In this process CALs produces and creates knowledge; and through media and consciousness raising work engage in influencing the ideas, beliefs and understanding of broader society about justice for LBT people.
The ideology of CAL is one that is rooted in an analysis of patriarchy and intersecting bases of oppression including race, class, gender, geography, HIV status, age, gender expression, sexual orientation and other factors. A such, the issue that connects different parts of their work and with different movements is that of the demand and shaping of autonomy over our bodies and lives as people on the margins, including lesbian women and women who have sex with women, women who are sex workers, young women, women living with HIV and those working on and seeking abortion services, all criminalised, stigmatised and marginalised based on sexuality and gender and related factors.
